Homemade Candy Buttons!

Tomorrow night is our Family Movie Night. Soo..Ive decided to make a little treat for us....

C A N D Y B U T T O N S ! !

They were so easy and much cheaper to make them, than it is to buy them!



*1 lb (1 box) powdered sugar

*2 egg whites

*1/4 teaspoon almond extract or lemon juice

**a few drops of water to thin out "frosting"

1.) With a mixer on lowest speed, combine all ingredients and mix until all combined and thickened.

2.) combine frosting into 4 separate bowls and add your food coloring ((If frosting is too thick add water a few drops at a time until it is the consistence of sour cream))

***frosting should hold its shape when piped out of baggie.

3.) Cut NON TOXIC paper into strips 2inches x 10 inches

4.) Pour frosting mixture into plastic baggies ((its easier and less of a mess if you place the bags into cups then pour the mixture in))

5.) cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe out in whatever pattern or arrange you'd like!

6.) Let harder over night, then store in zip baggie or container.

I know, I know...mine don't look the prettiest!...but the kids were still impressed and cant wait to get their little hands on 'em!

Good Luck!
